P2 Week 2001 - New Jersey

Organization(s) New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description To kick off P2 Week 2001 in NJ, DEP Commissioner Bob Shinn signed the "P2 Week Joint Resolution: Shop for a Better Environment." This built upon last year's activities where New Jersey was the fourth state, after Delaware, Massachusetts and Virginia, to sign the "International Declaration on Cleaner Production," sponsored by the United Nation Environment Programme.

The office held its second annual Children's Poster Contest, using the Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) theme, and launched the new Children's Webpage (www.state.nj.us/dep/opppc/ click on `Kid's Page'), which contains the poster contest entries and numerous fun and educational games to help children learn about P2. To promote this event, DEP held a contest asking all DEP employees to provide feedback on what they liked about the site, what they didn't like, and suggestions for improvement. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and DEP is incorporating several staff suggestions.

DEP displayed the Joint Resolution as well as the Poster Contest entries in the lobby of the main DEP building, and also distributed P2 tips and various brochures from the Office of Pollution Prevention and Permit Coordination. In addition, all DEP employees received daily e-mail P2/EPP tips based on the EPP Bookmark developed by the NEWMOA P2 Week Workgroup.
